Durability
Recent studies have shown that recycled construction and demolition waste (RCDW) can be used as backfill material in geosynthetics reinforced soil (GRS) structures. However, besides the environmental and economic benefits of this practice, it is necessary to evaluate the mechanical damages that RCDW could cause to the reinforcement elements. This study aims to i...

Ultrasonic longitudinal wave velocity (Vp) and durability are characteristics largely determined in geotechnical evaluations. These properties are useful in the analysis of weathered rocks because they usually have good relationships with physical and mechanical properties of rocks. Additionally, the tests to obtain these parameters are easy to perform. However,...

<p>This paper optimizes and compares the behavior of soil-cement compacted blends against several molding and climate conditions under optimum compaction and non-optimum compaction parameters. For this, an intensive laboratory study of silty soil samples treated with different percentages of high early strength Portland cement (PC) was investigated by a se...

The sustainable use of industrial wastes such as coal fly ash and carbide lime is an effective procedure to enhance the long-term performance of reclaimed asphalt pavement (RAP) under extreme freeze-thaw and wet-dry conditions. This study evaluates the impact of lime content (L) and dry unit weight (gd) on the durability and long-term performance of compacted RA...
